This leads to higher heating and energy costs and expensive repairs to water heaters and appliances, such as ice machines, coffee makers, dishwashers as well as air conditioning equipment. Scale can also be a source for bacteria to grow, which can be a health concern in your drinking water.
Shafer Services has a new line of high efficiency water conditioning systems including scale prevention systems and dual-media water softeners & filters.

Water pressure can play a big part in your plumbing systems ability to bring you quality water. Shafer can help you whether you are experiencing Low or High pressure issues.
Water pressure within the San Antonio Water System can range from 35 to 175 pounds. High water pressure can be controlled by a pressure-reducing valve (PRV) installed on the property owner’s side of the water meter. If you already have pressure-reducing valve, it may need to be adjusted or serviced. Recommended water pressure, especially if you have a water softener or a sprinkler system, is 80 pounds.
Before you call for service ask yourself; Is the problem at every faucet? If it’s not, you may have a clogged aerator. Check the screens for rust or other particles that may be restricting flow. Clean and or replace aerator.
Low pressure can also be caused by problems with your water heater, water softener or even a water leak somewhere on your property. If cleaning the aerator does not fix your problem, then give us a call and we’ll come out and get it fixed for you.
